Following Conor McGregor’s Instagram post where he claimed to have offered to fight Frankie Edgar at UFC 222, Edgar’s manager Ali Abdel-Aziz blasted McGregor and the idea that he offered to fight Edgar.
According to a story posted by MMA Fighting, on an interview with TMZ, Abdel-Aziz claimed that McGregor had his chance to fight Edgar at UFC 189 in 2015, and has done everything he could do to not fight Edgar.
“Let me tell you about Conor McGregor,” Abdel-Aziz said. “He’s like a prostitute, used to make high-dollar money, but she got old and nobody wanted her anymore. This f*cking guy. For three years, he did everything he can not to fight Frankie Edgar.
“He had so many opportunities. Now he wants to fight Frankie? That’s funny.”
Edgar, who was originally slated to face Max Holloway, will now face Brian Ortega in UFC 222’s co-main event. Abdel-Aziz said that McGregor should push t fight Edgar at UFC 225 on June 9 in Chicago.
“I don’t care if Frankie is 50 years old,” Abdel-Aziz said. “Frankie could be 50 years old and beat the shit out of him and the whole entire nation of Ireland. He’d beat everyone in Ireland hands down.
“He can’t beat Frankie. He can wait until Frankie is 60 — Frankie would still beat his ass.”
